Testimonials about Fashion Design
"I loved my time in Florence and the Global Experiences program. I really liked how each person's experience is tailored to the individual and their strengths. The other interns on the program were a really fun and diverse group to spend time with. Florence was a great city to work in-just being surrounded by that culture and history. My internship was very hands on. Starting from the day I walked in, my tutor showed me some stuff and I got right on it. The internship was really helpful in landing my new job and I know that it has benefited my career. I just got hired to work for a custom men's wear company, but eventually, I'd like to open up my own studio. My advice to future interns: know exactly what you want to come for. Work your butt off to become irresistible to employers, and completely immerse yourself in the experience. "
"It was worth every penny, for I have learned things that no one can teach you but yourself, and there is no better place to do so than half-way around the world, in Italy, doing what you do best."
"My internship was more than I ever could have hoped for. So many opportunities and learning experiences; Global Experiences helped me to grow in both professional and personal ways."
"My experience was challenging but definitely enjoyable and extremely rewarding. I am so glad that I chose to do an internship abroad and Global Experiences was key in making that dream a reality."
"My internship in Florence, Italy was absolutely amazing. I met some new lifetime friends from around the world, also gained new talents from my internship that will help me in my job market. I would not trade my experience for anything."
"Global Experiences created opportunities I may not have had without my Internship in London. They were able to match my interests and career goals with a wonderful and experienced employer. Without Global Experiences, I believe I would not have had this once in a lifetime opportunity, which helped me achieve my goal of interning abroad that I set for myself at the beginning of my college career. From start to finish Global Experiences made the entire process simple, organized, and fun."
“I had the most amazing summer. I couldn’t have asked for a better placement. Thanks to GE for making it happen!”
